Solely going by the pics, Soundwave doesn't look too appealing to me and Space Case is sorta in the middle with me. But like so many times before, the pics don't usually do the actual toy justice from my experience. If I went solely by the pics, I never would have bought Scorponok or Landmine and they're among my faves right now.

In regards to the whole 'same name' junk:

Change it.

Make a new name.

Have a ceremony.

Sacrifice a virgin in the process.

Seriously, every character Hasbro has made that reuses some G1 character's name I've renamed to something completely different. Armada Blurr is now Speedshot, Armada Thrust is Turbulus, Armada Starscream and Thundercracker are now Stormwing and Cloudstrike, Machine Wars Thundercracker and Skywarp are now Jetsmash and Jetwash, Energon Inferno is named Overhaul (after a casualty character in War Within), etc.

don't like mine? Make a new one yourself. Who cares about the names?

(Except far too many of you that weren't happy Hot Rod was named Rodimus Major. Now they're countering that and the kiddies still aren't happy. Meh...)

I just think that if they do issue a name, at least have it match the robot and character. Megatron has a versatile name, which can be applied to any "application." Soundwave has tendency to elude to a certain feature.

Because most Transformers don't have radios?

It could also reasonably apply to practically anyone with a sonic weapon...

Is the virgin part mandatory?

Anyway... Just today/yesterday, I had this idea for a made-up character named "Stormwing". Scary how we came up with the same name... (So if I ever post something about my Stormwing, I didn't steal the name from you, mmkay?)

It would be helpfull if the toy at least looked like it had a sonic weapon, and not a little radar dish. I'm not complaining he is not like the G1 character, but the name just dosent match.

I believe there's no reason a dish couldn't be part of a sonic weapon [though this is based on that Biggles movie which had Peter Cushing in it]. What does a sonice weapon look like? A boombox? Some really ****ing huge speakers and a turntable? Does it have "sonic weapon" written on the side? Does it fire blue hedgehogs? Brandish the latest Distillers album?

That was cooler until I realised it was probably a reference to the Sega character...

"You want me to be some big stupid purple dinosaur!"
"Phoebe, nobody's asking you to be Barney..."
"Who?"

I've also just realised that The Wild One meant 'allude' in the post above.

More than a few TF names don't make literal sense, Starscream and Grimlock being two of the most obvious. The new Soundwave toy has two scanning features... the radar dish (sound) and space probe (with schematics)... it probably makes more sense if you've ever owned an example of the mould and seen the tracking thing inside it.

Machine Wars Soundwave also looks the part completely...

No, it's Sir Ernest Shackleton. Don't let the fact it's a piece of art in the fan section fool you.
